Not very good

This magazine hasn't been optimised for tablet use. You're only buying a PDF version of the magazine, which has incredibly small font text. When using it in portrait mode you get one small page, swapping to landscape mode gives you two even smaller pages. You have to zoom in on the page so much that you lose all of the contextual layout of the magazine article and you find yourself dragging the page all over to read text and see associated images. Other magazine apps and books I've used have been properly optimised for tablet use and have the ability to display a single page in landscape mode, which results in larger text, and they also have the text set out to flow as you scroll down a page. This gives them a more natural reading feel. I gave up after reading the first two or three pages of the TGO magazine app and went out and bought the paper version of the magazine. This had the potential to be a great app, but £2.99 for an unusable PDF is, in my opinion, a waste of money. I've deleted the app from my iPad.



The magazine is still full of great content as always and the price is great compared to on the stand however one of the main reasons I buy this magazine is for the beautiful high definition photos of the great outdoors, but when zooming in on the magazine on my iPad the images blur. Other publications like Trail Magazine manage to do this on their iPad editions, I really hope TGO does soon, until then I think I'd rather pay more for a nice big HD piece of paper!
